HRM Council sessions to hit the Internet on Haligonia.ca October 19


HRM Release:

(October 6, 2010) – Residents of Halifax Regional Municipality will
soon be able use their computers to watch their elected representatives
conduct business.

Vocalocal Media, through its news site www.haligonia.ca, will begin
live-streaming regular public sessions of Regional Council as of October
19.

Mayor Peter Kelly welcomed the development, noting it would allow
Council proceedings to reach an even wider audience than is already the
case.

“By making full use of today’s technology, we will be that much
more available to those who elected us,” he said.

The Mayor added he anticipated the new service would also help improve
transparency in government.

Steven Morrison, one of the partners in haligonia.ca, said he was
excited at the opportunity to partner with HRM to broadcast Council
meetings over the Internet.  “It’s another way to provide access to
the inner workings of Council in a medium which most young people use
nowadays,” he said. “It’s all about providing more choice.”

According to Mayor Kelly, computer users will be able to log onto the
website and follow prompts to the live feeds.  In addition, they will
have access to replays of the previous week’s Council session, not
only on their computers, but soon on mobile devices as well.

Eastlink TV will continue to broadcast regular meetings of Regional
Council.
